A moment to remember

September 28, 2011 at 8:43 pm (Uncategorized)

I had to go out of town suddenly a few days ago. We literally were only able to give the kids about a half hour warning before I left town, but felt pretty confident Andikpeme would be okay since his dad was staying home with him and his sister. After 24 hours Brendan told him that they were going for supper at his aunt and uncle’s (something he loves to do) and he asked, ‘But is mom going to be there?’ I have to say that totally warmed my heart.

Then tonight we were saying good- night on Skype and he asked me when I was coming home. When I told him tomorrow he said, ‘I’m so excited because I love to do crafts with you, I love to do things with you, I love to cook with you…I just love you so much mom!’

Of course he has told me he loves me a million times and I’ve loved it every time. But this one was different. This isn’t a love that stems from being his primary caregiver. He is confident and happy even though I am not there. I could hear it in his voice, I could see it in his eyes, I can sense it in his confidence. It was pure, genuine, selfless love and it made me cry.
